RA 74, PG 26


Author: Grant OenCCCSA Assistant Director


On Saturday, July 22, CCCSA held the 74th Reverse Angle tournament, coincidentally on Peter "overlord" Giannatos' 26th birthday.

Reverse Angle has a very rich history, and it has become an incredibly strong and well-attended tournament.

The tournament and its guaranteed $850 prize fund is divided into three sections: Top, Under 1800, and Under 1400.  A grand total of 65 players entered the mental jousting arena.


TOP
In the top section, Tianqi "Stephen" Wang (2381) and South Carolina's Klaus Pohl (2200) were the two masters in the field, thus earning free entry.  They were closely followed by many Experts such as Mark "the Englishman" Biernacki (2136) and RA73 champion Dominique "property of Eric Hansen" Myers (2128) in a section with 18 players.

In the end, Wang and Myers were joined by Jay Goss (2139) at 2.5/3, earning $84 each.  Adharsh Rajagopal (1883) scored a solid 2/3 and the $50 U2000 prize - he also crossed 1900 for the first time.
